The New York Yankees and Los Angeles Angels will play Sunday night at Yankee Stadium, on ESPN, in the rubber match of a three-game series. The Yanks took game one behind a great performance from Hiroki Kuroda, who earned his first win in the pinstripes. A day later, the Angels knocked Phil Hughes around, taking game two.
Sunday's pitching match-up is scheduled to be Ivan Nova vs. Jerome Williams. Williams, the 30-year-old veteran, will be making his first start of the season. The Angels activated him from the disabled list on Saturday. Nova will look to build on his brilliant performance in his first start of the season, when he went seven innings and struck out seven in a winning effort.
Alex Rodriguez of the Yankees needs one home run to pass Ken Griffey Jr. for fifth place on the all-time home run list.
The game will be televised on ESPN and ESPN3. First pitch is scheduled for 8:05 p.m. EST.
